    Mustering from the Undercroft: Order of the Amethyst Blade

    Officially started phase one of the army with a purchase of "Children of the Hydra's Teeth". At .77 cents a model, it's quite a deal, and the miniatures look pretty good. The necromancer that comes in the kit isn't quite what I'm looking for, but he'll do until I can get my hands on a collegiate...

    Mustering from the Undercroft: Order of the Amethyst Blade

    Norba has a kickstarter coming up next month with knights and undead that look interesting. I'm not pleased over the waiting time kickstarter requires, but could be worth the wait.

    Mustering from the Undercroft: Order of the Amethyst Blade

    You are right, though it looks there's been some miscommunication. I hadn't decided on whether to run vampires or deathrattle until today, and I meant to convey that my interest in the Legion of Blood was prospective. Your guidance has helped me make an informed decision on the matter, and I...

    Mustering from the Undercroft: Order of the Amethyst Blade

    After a productive session of creative writing I've solidified my army as the Order of the Amethyst Sword, centered around Deathrattle troops. So... I guess I'll just have to figure something out for those Morghasts then, cause that "Nagash" armor really bugs me.

    Order of the Amethyst Blade (TYOV Prompts)

    Entry 1 I woke from death and beheld the pale visage of the dead looming over me. It spoke in a reverberating whisper, eager to have me rise from my sarcophagus and deal with an intruder in our sacred undercroft. As my bearing set themselves to their resumed duties and oaths, I recalled that...

    Vampire Prompts: Thousand Year Old Vampire

    In case you haven't heard of it, or need reminding, a man named Tim Hutchings put together a writing game called Thousand Year Old Vampire: Thousand Year Old Vampire by timhutchings I've found it really useful for developing the lore for my own undead army, which I'll be sharing soon on the...

    Mustering from the Undercroft: Order of the Amethyst Blade

    I haven't spent much time looking at the large monsters just yet, but a terrorgheist sounds like fun. Might as well get the most out of the allegiance abilities, if I go that route. I think I'll stick to skeletons in any case, I want my army to have a grounded, physical terror. I've also found...

    Your Favorite Mortarch?

    Thanks Malisteen, I really appreciate that. Yeah, it's hard to say what GW is planning. My personal preference is against running special characters, since I like my army generals to be "my guys". I do hope they rework Neferata and Mannfred to be more useful. Speaking of Mannfred, I've never...

    Your Favorite Mortarch?

    I've heard some weird off-hand stuff about the fiction, but I also have the Neferata material in my sights, would like to know a little about how the Legion of Blood operates, more specifically. I'm not a fan of the Morghast models, so if Legion of Blood wins me over I can just ignore them.

    Age of sigmar

    People keep talking about how a vampire book is just around the corner. I hope that's the case. Anyone know how robust the new create your own character thing out of GH2020 is?

    Mustering from the Undercroft: Order of the Amethyst Blade

    As I brought my attention to bear upon the idea of starting a new undead army, I found myself rather underwhelmed at the prospective troops Games Workshop was proffering. I get it, the undead troops are supposed to be super spooky and vampire themed, but the armor and weapons looks like they're...

    Knightly Morghast Replacement?

    Oh my fellow lords of the night, I'm not sure Morghasts are going fit the aesthetic I'm aiming for, and I need some recommendations. Think undead Bretonnians or Lord Soth. Mierce's Gasts are close with some work to clean up their appearance and modify their armament, but is there anything closer?
